Things to Consider Before Choosing Your Vegan Delivery Service

It will probably come as a surprise, but the amount of vegan food delivery services in the U.S. is more than you’ll expect! But before you go on looking for a number to dial, first things first. How do you choose your delivery service?

Location & Delivery Time

The location, of course, goes without saying, but in case you need a reminder, locations affect delivery times. The closer you are to the service, the fastest you can get your food. In some cases, you can even pick up your order! 

There are many food companies that offer nationwide delivery, and these will usually take a few days to a week before it reaches you. If this is your only choice, make sure you have alternative plans in mind for when your food doesn’t arrive when you expect it. 

Taste

It’s easier to keep on a diet when your health food is also appetizing right? A lot of people think that healthy food, especially vegan food is bland and boring. 

We, vegans, know that this is a thing of the past now. However, it still helps when we can find convenient vegan food that we can also enjoy and not just swallow like a bitter pill, literally.

When it comes to taste, consumer reviews are your best bet. While I know that food photos can contribute to my decision when choosing, reviews still help a lot. Even more so when these reviews come with actual photos.

So, as much as possible, look for consumer feedback first. But if there is none, you can always ask the seller, especially about its main ingredients. That will give you the best idea! 

Price

Convenience comes with a price, but it doesn’t have to be expensive all the time. A lot of food delivery services offer packages for daily and weekly meals, which will help you save costs, somehow. Most of these services offer lower prices for subscriptions and higher serving quantities. 

Also, do not get subscriptions until you’re really sure that you really like the food and that you can commit to the costs. Start with a single or one-off orders if possible. It would also be safer to choose companies that have an easier cancellation policy.

Nutritional Value 

Long-time vegans know that NOT all vegan food items are healthy. So when it comes to choosing your meals, you still have to look at how it can benefit your personal nutritional needs. 

The good thing is many vegan meals are made with nutrition in mind. Also, meals with particular nutrients often come with that label, which will make it easy for you. 

Go for companies that include the ingredients and nutrition label of their meals either on the packaging or through their product website. This gives you a black and white of what you’re really getting.

Range Of Products

Variety takes “boring” away from repetitive food choices. Unless you can eat your favorite meal every day, it’s always better when you have more choices to enjoy. Most vegan deliveries offer fixed menu items, which means you’ll have no choice, although you can skip them. 

However, there are also ones that offer more varieties, including options to customize meals according to the preferences they accommodate. Are you a picky eater? Or you’re really just not that adventurous with food? Then all the more you’ll have to look for a wider variety.
